I am having thyroid from many years what should I do to get rid of this disease from roots.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
are you referring to hypothyroidism? if so then the only option is to take thyroxine tablets for lifetime. As this is a deficiency disorder, the hormone needs to be supplemented daily as a tablet from outside. There is no other treatment.

My tsh level is 2.5 and its normal but my weight is not decreasing even after diet.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. Lybrate-user, yes you are over weight with a bmi of 25.95 kgs /m2. With well controlled hypothyroidism, you should be able to reduce the weight. You need to increase the effort both in terms of reduced dietary intake and increased physical effort. It is better if you join a gym and do workout under the guidance of a professional trainer. Plus your diet should provide exact calories based on ideal body weight (70 kgs); but to achieve a bmi of 23 kgs weight has to be down to 67 kgs. So 67 x 30 calories = 2000 calories. If you keep these things in mind and plan your workouts and food intake there is a possibility of meeting the targets. Thanks.

Hello, My mother is having thyroid and blood anemia due to which her HB remains low. She is taking daily one dilzem tablet for heart beat function control and one thyroxine early morning as advice by doctor . Now recently she got some severe teeth pain and dentist advice her for root canal treatment of that teeth. As per HB test conducted today her hemoglobin is only 4.5. Request your advice whether we can go ahead with root canal treatment for teeth or should wait for HB to be little normal. Is there any risk to undergo root canal treatment at present position. Dentist told to consult physician and take advice to go ahead. Hence request your advice. My mother is 52 years old. Thanks!

Lybrate-user, root canal treatment (rct) is a surgical procedure, so it is better that before any such procedure blood picture improves. In fact hb 4.5g/100 ml, is too low. It may need packed cell (rbcs) transfusion. Or else should immediately start on iron preparations either capsules or if needed then injections. Hb g% should come to at least 8 to 10 g/100 ml, then operative procedure may be considered. Whether rct is done or not, she has to start on iron therapy immediately, becaus of very severe anemia. Such a condition will put severe strain on her heart function, thanks.

Mr Barun Kumar, Please tell me are you on any anti diabetic drugs, if yes what are those and their dosage? The ayurvedic product mentioned is supposed to be for helping liver activity. It has no relation to diabetes control or insulin activity. If you no liver related issues then you may stop that. But it is important to take proper medications for controlling blood sugar.

If your TSH level is 6.04 even on medication then you need a change in dosage. Contact me with your T3, T4 levels and I will correct the dose.

Avoid chocolate, cakes, ice cream, soft drinks and fruit juices. Eat lots of vegetables. Walk for at least 30 minutes a day for 5 days in a week.

lybrate-user. Thanks for the query. TSH 4.2 mU/L is with in the normal range. So if this is the first time tested value then there is no need for any treatment. Levothyroxine is usually prescribed when TSH is over 10 mU/l. Even for values between 6 to 9.9 mU/L there is no treatment advocated. Only in cases where there are severe troublesome symptoms of hypothyroidism presnet even at lower values (6 to 9.9) then some times treatment is given. With the value mentioned 4.2 mU/l there is NO Hypothyroidism. Thanks.

Mr. Lybrate-user, if you have diabetes mellitus, then, it is essential to start appropriate treatment. Drugs will depend on the severity of sugar levels and type of diabetes. In addition you will have to take a balanced and restricted diet, that provides exact calories based on your ideal body weight, extent of daily exercise and sugar levels. Plus daily exercise of at least 1 hour. Plus you have to avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries and sweetened aerated drinks. Consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits about 100 ga day. Avoid alcohol and and smoking.

Alcohol is a direct source of increasing blood sugars. That is it easily gets digested and increases the blood sugar levels in the body. Therefore alcohol intake further only worsens the blood sugar levels in diabetic patients. It would be better to avoid alcohol intake to help managing sugars and therefore prevent the development of any diabetic complications further.

Mr Ganesh Kumar, since you have T1 DM, I am sure you are on Insulin injections. By now you must have learnt that Insulin injections is the treatment for T1 DM. In addition to that you have to take a properly planned diet that provides exact calories based on your wight, physical activity (daily exercise) and blood sugar levels. Plus you will have to avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods and pastries. Also refrain from smoking and alcohol. Do regular exercise for at least 1 hour a day. In short you have to adapt a modified lifestyle.Plus do self monitoring of blood glucose wit the help of a glucometer at home. This is essential to keep a track of your glucose levels in order to avoid severe hypoglycemia.

Diabetes can occur at any age, you should first know the cause of it, so that appropriate action can be taken, also you can start having methi (fenugreek) water in the morn, besides get a diet plan for yourself. Eat at regular intervals at every 3-4 hours also avoid refined grains (rice, maida) have food rich in fiber like whole grains, fruits etc.
